Governor awards close to $8 million statewide in YCPI grants
DENVER – Governor Bill Owens has awarded $7.9 million statewide in Youth Crime Prevention and Intervention (YCPI) grants to reduce incidents of youth crime and violence. Gunnison County organizations and programs received $65,117.
"These monies will go toward helping to address violence and criminal activity among youth in Colorado," said Gov. Owens. "The organizations that are receiving funding will serve thousands of young people and their families through prevention and intervention programs."
The following Gunnison County organization is a YCPI recipient for fiscal year 2000-2001:
Gunnison County Partners: Gunnison Hinsdale Juvenile Crime
Prevention Intervention Project.
Program Description: This program provides intervention services to 15 juvenile probationers and five juvenile diversion youth. The services include Life Skills Training, an Employment Skills Program and Restitution Work Crew.
